The Victorian Liberal Party has launched its election campaign nine months ahead of the poll. The party concluded its “launch week” on Sunday, focusing on target electorates with many Liberal MPs also taking to the streets to join candidates in campaigning. Melbourne’s sandbelt will be a major focus for the Coalition’s target seat campaign, with Labor holding Frankston by 0.5 per cent, Carrum by 0.7 per cent and Mordialloc on 2.1 per cent. Labor holds nearby Bentleigh by 0.8 per cent.
The Albert Park Golf Course will retain all 18 holes after an outcry against a proposal to reduce its size. The backflip comes after the Liberal Party promised to protect the course if elected in November. Golfing groups also attacked the proposal to shrink the course to nine holes as part of a broader upgrade planned for Albert Park. But Parks Victoria has now backed away from that plan as well.
Premier Daniel Andrews says he would support releasing a "version" of the report into the allegations against former lord mayor Robert Doyle. Mr Doyle quit Melbourne City Council last week, after a series of sexual harassment allegations were made against him by multiple women, including two fellow councillors. "I don't know how many people have come forward and made claims,” Mr Andrews told ABC Radio on Tuesday morning.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
